Saw that.  Our stuff is our proprietary forms system; what's needed here
is cforms based stuff.  Even if I could get permission to post our stuff
I think it's so far from what the general community needs that our
interface won't help.  

OTOH, having a generalized Flex generator would be compatible with where
we want to go and might be something we can contribute to. Flex, if it's
like the most recent Flash is "compressed", don't know the compression
scheme or if the raw data stream is publicly documented.  This might
take some reverse engineering or at least a bit research; our front guys
haven't yet started to look at Flex, we're currently using the most
recent version of Flash.  Anyone know if Flex is even something we could
really generate (legally) from Cocoon?
